Following early unconfirmed reports that BA was shipping misplaced baggage at Terminal 5 on Indonesian freighters for temporary storage in duty-free warehouses in Dubai, BA spokesman confirmed to AFP reporters that baggage not claimed by passengers would be shipped to its final destination by the next available plane or BY SEA.

In clear attempt to improve its record for uniting the majority of bags with passengers in under 72 hours, BA clearly felt that putting bags on a slow boat to China was the best way to rival the baggage handling capabilities of Hong Kong airport.

In the Far East, bags are regularly handled using RFID tags -- a technology that BA ruled out using in 2002 as not it was not a mature technology, as opposed to the rival method first developed by cavemen.

CEO David Walsh was not available for comment and his assistant referred journalists requiring further information to the the BA web site.
